Donner & Reuschel enters the crypto custody business, tokenization of securities under review | 05.03.21


“We have been observing the digital assets market for quite some time and are convinced of the potential of blockchain technology, also with regard to classic securities transactions,” says Marcus Vitt, the bank’s spokesman. The offer of crypto custody is a reaction to the great demand on the market, but in a next step the topic of tokenization will also be dealt with intensively.

“Blockchain technology will result in the greatest structural change in the financial industry that I have been able to experience so far in my 20-year banking career. And of course we want to ensure that both our customers and the bank benefit from this change in the best possible way.”

With DLC Distributed Ledger Consulting GmbH, the only blockchain specialist consultancy for semi-professional and professional financial market participants has been brought into the house as a companion. Dr. Sven Hildebrandt, CEO of DLC, says:

“We are very pleased to be able to support such an established bank as Donner & Reuschel not only with the strategic orientation, but also with the very practical implementation our platform start a corresponding tender and then go into implementation. ”

Further blockchain projects are currently being examined, whereby the tokenization of assets in particular comes into question at this point. The eWPG offers interesting design options that should be taken proactively in the future.
